The Seahawks are pretty defined cap-wise, with Russell Wilson and Frank Clark commanding over 20 percent of the team's cap together. However, Seattle still has some bad contracts on the books they may need to get rid of sooner than many fans think.
3. Barkevious Mingo
The issue with Mingo's contract is just that he's an average linebacker, and a $5.3 million cap hit for the 2019 season is too much for him. K.J. Wright, a much more important player on the Seahawks' defensive side of the ball, registers a smaller cap hit, and receives a smaller salary, and it doesn't make sense to pay Mingo more for less effective play.
2. Doug Baldwin
Baldwin's $13 million cap hit is just too much at this point considering his injury issues. Baldwin is a talented receiver when healthy, but at this point the team is throwing money into a hole considering he may not even be at full strength to start next season.
1. Mychal Kendricks
Kendricks doesn't have a huge cap hit, but the linebacker is facing insider trading charges and will cost Seahawks $3 million for the upcoming season. Yet, Seattle is still keeping him on their roster. Kendricks may be prevented from playing football in 2019, so why is the team taking the financial risk by re-signing him?
